Doesn't show contacts - OWA

Bug #685543 reported by Quin Dennis on 2010-12-05

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Selecting the CONTACTS view, selecting a contacts folder, Evolution freezes for about 15 seconds, but never retrieves contacts. Same freeze behavior when trying to access contact folder properties. Removing "Copy book content" does allow Properties dialog to come up instantly, but this setting has no effect on showing content.

Hey, progress --- in both directions. Contacts now appear but email doesn't.

It would really be nice to have both Contacts AND Email working at the same time.

Interesting, for a few minutes this morning, both actually worked, email and contacts.

But, alas, it is now back to timing out, not showing contacts, and essentially timing out on fetching emails.

Still, no contacts.

Any attempt to fix this, of any acknowledgement of receipt of this bug report would be well received.

Still a big issue, making Evolution unusable. Too Bad!

Composing email, typing contact, it freezes for over a minute.

Quin Dennis (quinpav) wrote :

Still quite broken.

I installed a new copy of Ubuntu in a VirtualBox and set up Evolution to hit my OWA server. It seemed to work for about 10 minutes, now it is hopelessly screwed up as well.

I deleted the .evolution folder and restarted. It still shows my old setup (account), just not the emails (which it downloaded again). Now contacts has the 'ghost list' of address books from the older account and a duplicate list from the second account pointing to the same email server, and neither set works!

Is this really supposed to work with OWA 2003?

Is there any REAL replacement for Outlook in Linux?

Are we hopelessly bound to Windows?

Oops! I was too hasty.

It only works for a few minutes, then it's broke again.

So please DO change something. Make it work!!!
